Can you believe, it’s snowing AGAIN here in Upstate NY? I haven’t put away my winter boots, so I SURELY can’t even approach the subject of sandals, or anything that will expose my toes anytime soon. Fortunately, this season is full of fun, functional flats that will help us transition smoothly to the sandal weather.
First, there are the OH-SO-CUTE mules that have made a killer comeback. I am especially drawn to the sleek, clean lines of the pointy loafer-like designs. The pale pink ones below are my personal favorites of this collage. Next… espadrilles. YES, those same ones that you wore in high school are back! High ones, low ones, with and without backs… they’re cool, comfortable, and feature a variety of charming summertime motifs that will look ADORBS with everything denim. Last and definitely not least… the pointy-toe flat. I’ve always been a fan (mostly for the SOLE reason that they elongate your leg more than a rounded-toe ballet flat). As you can see, I love me a bold, preppy stripe (on anything, really) and this loafer’s versatility can bring you from day to night seamlessly (with some bejeweled or sparkly versions actually making their way to more formal affairs).
Here are some of my favorite flats this spring! Links below the collage.
- Boden “Lottie” Flats
- SARTO by Franco Sarto “Palmer” Mule

Whether they’re super-cool mules, whimsical espadrilles or sweetly-detailed loafers, you’ll surely find something for your lifestyle. So even if it’s not yet practical, throw on a pair of these cuties but be sure to hop over those still-slushy puddles. That is, if you want them to last until the REAL spring arrives.
